Testing the Waters
In order for fish to thrive, water must be similar to that which could be found in their natural environment. Poor water quality can cause fish stress, illness and even loss. Most common water quality parameters are Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, and pH. All may vary over time and all are invisible to the eye which is why it is important to test weekly. Testing aquarium water weekly will aid in keeping your most important water parameters within the proper range for your aquarium. Choose from a wide range of API testing options, such as our popular FRESHWATER MASTER TEST KIT or 5-IN-1 TEST STRIPS, for accurate water evaluation. Regular testing will help you easily determine your aquarium conditions.

Keep your fish healthy and thriving by testing your aquarium water’s NO2 levels regularly with this easy-to-use API NITRITE TEST KIT for freshwater and saltwater aquariums. Testing water parameters weekly helps prevent invisible water problems that can be harmful to fish. Nitrite is produced in the aquarium by fish waste and uneaten fish food. Low levels of nitrite inhibit respiration and suppress the immune system; high levels cause suffocation. The API NITRITE TEST KIT tests for harmful nitrite levels from 0 to 5 ppm. This product comes with one nitrite bottle, one capped glass test tube, one instruction manual and one color card. API NITRITE TEST KIT can be used in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
